 4:12
4:11 Now you are cursed from the ground that opened its mouth to take your brother's blood from your hand.
Ve'atah arur atah min-ha'adamah asher patseta et-piha lakachat et-demey achicha miyadecha.
4:12 When you work the ground, it will no longer give you of its strength. You will be restless and isolated in the world.
Ki ta'avod et-ha'adamah lo-tosef tet-kocha lach na vanad tihyeh va'arets.



Commentary:

isolated
  Nad in Hebrew, from nadah, to be isolated or banished (cf. Hirsch). Others, 'a wanderer,' from nadad.
